There are one hundred and fourteen colleges and universities in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that are listed under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.[1] These institutions include four research universities, twenty-one master's universities, and thirty-four special-focus institutions. Eighty-four of Massachusetts' post-secondary institutions are private, of which five are for-profit. Thirty of the state's post-secondary institutions listed under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education are public.

Massachusetts' oldest post-secondary institution is Harvard University, founded in 1636.[2] Tracing its routes back to 1839, Boston University is the state's largest institution of higher learning in terms of enrollment, as it had 32,603 students as of the fall of 2013.[3][4] According to the United States Department of Education Institute of Education Sciences, Conway School of Landscape Design is the state's smallest with an enrollment of 18.[5] The University of Massachusetts Amherst is Massachusetts' largest public university, with an enrollment of 28,518 students.[6]

The University of Massachusetts Amherst is Massachusetts' sole land-grant university.[7] There are also eleven Catholic post-secondary institutions listed under the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education in Massachusetts, including Assumption College, Boston College, College of the Holy Cross, Elms College, Labouré College, Merrimack College, and Stonehill College. There are also multiple Judaic post-secondary institutions in Massachusetts, including Brandeis University, Clark University, and Hebrew College.

Massachusetts has four medical schools: Boston University School of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Tufts University School of Medicine, and the University of Massachusetts Medical School. There are nine law schools, which are accredited by the American Bar Association: Boston College Law School, Boston University School of Law, Harvard Law School, Massachusetts School of Law at Andover, New England School of Law, Northeastern University School of Law, Suffolk University Law School, University of Massachusetts School of Law, and the Western New England University School of Law.[8] One hundred and seven of Massachusetts post-secondary institutions are officially recognized by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Most are accredited by multiple agencies, such as the American Psychological Association (APA), the American Speech–Language–Hearing Association (ASHA), the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada (ATS), the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
